DESCRIPTION:
Reflective of its cool climate vineyards, this Napa Valley Chardonnay shows generous lemon meringue, crisp pear, tart stone fruit and honeysuckle. The wonderful lemon fruit intensity is balanced by pleasant undertones of light smoke and almond skin, and this Chardonnay remains vibrant and crisp throughout with its bright minerality and natural acidity.



The grapes for this wine were picked, quickly brought to the winery and sent directly to press with no crushing. Winemaker Laurie Hook fermented and aged 74% of the juice in small French oak barrels (4% new) for nine months. The remainder fermented and aged in small stainless steel tanks. Laurie chose to put 60% of the wine through malolactic fermentation to balance the wine’s bright fruit and acidity with a lush, creamy mouthfeel.

This is a generous and ripe version of the variety, reflective of warmer Napa Valley sites, and a wine that's completely delicious in its abundance of apple and caramel.
